Laser Analyser Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science Launches new Laser Analyser Range
Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science Corporation has launched Vulcan+, an advanced line of analyzers for laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). The range is expanded to include the existing Smart and Expert models, while a new Optimum+ model is added to the product line. The entire product range retains Vulcan's market-leading analytical capabilities.
The new Vulcan Optium+ model has been optimised for analysing aluminum alloys. It features a new high-performance spectrometer, enabling the measurement of lithium in aluminum alloys and it’s also capable of measuring boron-aluminum alloys. Boron and lithium are both elements that cannot be measured with any handheld X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analyser. The Vulcan Optimum+ is a tool for identifying modern aerospace alloys in manufacturing and scrapyards.
The calibrations for the updated Vulcan Smart+ and Expert+ models have been revised and extended based on customer feedback. Customers will continue to benefit from unparallel speed and ease of use they’ve come accustomed to with the Vulcan. Our Vulcan+ range of analysers will continue to enable users to identify metal alloys in just one second, delivering productivity gains in both manufacturing QA/QC and scrapyards.
The Vulcan+ range will continue to benefit from advanced reporting direct from the instrument as well as the ExTOPE Connect mobile phone app and cloud connectivity for data transfer and storage. With the cloud service, users will have real-time access to results anytime, anywhere. Mikko Järvikivi, Head of Product Management, said: “Delivering best in class analytical capability, the Vulcan is known for its speed, ease of use and robustness. We continue to invest in developing our LIBS product range, working together with customers to manufacture market leading instruments.”
